Lead Auditor for Management Systems & Processes

Benefit from the expertise and rigor of AAMI faculty as you learn today’s best practices for conducting internal audits and supplier audits for regulatory compliance.

For years, AAMI courses have been the gold standard for training on the implementation of FDA 21 CFR Part 820 Quality System Regulation and ANSI/AAMI/ISO 13485: 2016/(R)2019. Now, auditors can also benefit from the expertise and rigor of AAMI faculty as they learn today’s best practices for conducting internal audits and supplier audits for compliance with FDA, ISO, MDSAP and EU MDR requirements. We’ll also provide coverage of ASQ/ANSI/ISO 19011:2018, Guidelines For Auditing Management Systems.

Over two information-packed, interactive days, participants will learn…

  • Current requirements for internal audits in today's international medical device market
  • Best practices in the interpretation and application of AAMI and other standards
  • How to conduct effective “remote/virtual” QMS audits. (This is “must-have knowledge” during this pandemic!)
  • Hands-on advice on how to meet FDA expectations for audit procedures, auditor qualifications and audit records
  • The latest on MDSAP and EU MDR status and best practices for working with Notified Bodies

Registration includes…

  • a copy of ANSI/AAMI/ISO 13485: 2016/(R)2019 (a $249 retail value)
  • OnDemand access to the recordings following the event (you don’t have to be available live to take advantage of all the learning)
  • a QMS auditing exam qualification record
  • access to the AAMI Alumni community group

Please note: This course is being held virtually.
